modern wedding: succulent boutonnières

Clean, modern greenery is the perfect accent for your modern wedding. Just look at these charming boutonnieres, made from lovely, little succulents and the tiniest bit of fern. Let us show you how easy it is to make as many as you need!
Step 1
Project Note: To make each boutonniere really stand out, choose succulents in a variety of colors and shapes. Have fun and be creative!
 
Cut one section from a succulent pick. Make sure the stem is no longer than 2". 
Step 2
Snip a few pieces of fern to place behind the succulent.
 
TIP: The fern should extend an inch or two above the succulent, but the exact length is up to you! As with the succulents, it’s ok to have some variation from boutonniere to boutonniere. 
Step 3
Wrap the succulent and fern stems together tightly with floral tape.

TIP: As you wrap, make sure to stretch the tape to release its coating of wax adhesive, which will make it to stick to itself. (Loose floral tape is not very sticky.)
Step 4
Finally, finish your boutonniere by wrapping black ribbon over the floral tape. Use a little hot glue to fasten the ribbon’s end in place once you’re done. 
Step 5
To wear, place the boutonniere on the left jacket lapel (covering the buttonhole, if there is one) and secure it in place at the ribbon-wrapped section with a long pin.
